The main point for using Firefox was the inclusion of descriptions in the bookmark.

Now there is no point in it anymore, why make a good browser terrible. Improvement are allowed but not at the expense of functionality, endless misunderstanding of this has made people move on, don't get rid of the stuff people get the software for

The Description data is still in Firefox, it just can't seen of accessed any longer.

See this posting an alternative to that old feature:

Or you can try this extension:

Currently that extension does lack the ability to make used of the existing Bookmark Descriptions, but that data can be manually inserted (via copy & paste) or manually adding the information for each bookmark. And import feature will be added; progress on that enhancement can be followed here:

I have installed that extension and feel that it is a good replacement, once there's a way to automatically import a users existing data.

For some reason the export function looses some of the characters and the functionality, does not seem to be in the same case, no line ends, no line feeds and in dispersed with odd characters.

The best cure is to remove the Firefox update and return to previous version, get your data out then use another browser.
